Exclusive This versatile chai dao combines the smaller size and maneuverability of a santoku with the cutting power of a chef’s knife, resulting in a multi-purpose workhorse that’s perfect for chopping, dicing, slicing and more.

Thanks to a curved belly, the chai dao is ideal for rocking over herbs while mincing, and the wide, broad blade is great for smashing cloves of garlic or transferring foods from cutting board to pot. A hollow-ground edge helps prevent food from sticking. Wüsthof Gourmet blades are laser cut and precision stamped for razor-sharp edges and resist corrosion and dulling.

  • Laser testing ensures sharpness and optimal cutting angles
  • Triple-riveted, full-tang handles are contoured to fit comfortably in the hand
  • State-of-the-art manufacturing methods for consistently impeccable quality
  • Only structurally flawless knives receive the Wüsthof trident logo
  • Manufacturer: Wüsthof
  • Material: High-carbon stainless steel, polymer (POM)
  • Care: Hand wash only
  • Dimensions: 7" blade
  • Warranty: Limited lifetime warranty
  • Made in Germany

Unique Shape for Unique Uses
I bought this on sale - was not planning on buying a knife, but it seemed like a small price for a LOT of knife. What you may not be able to tell from the photo is that this is a wide knife, almost a little like a cleaver, but lighter weight. the wide blade gives me lots of knuckle clearance, and allows for smashing/chopping of anything on the cutting board! My only complaint is that it doesn't fit into my knife block - but I have an in-drawer solution so I just keep it in there.

I looked at some of the other reviews, and it looks like they are confused about the difference between Wusthof gourmet and classic. Classic is forged with a full bolster. Gourmet is lazer cut and therefor lighterweight. whoever said this was not sharp must have gotten a knife that had not been finished. Mine is razor sharp and I can sharpen it again and again because the entire blade is exposed (no bolster like in classic).

Great knife for vegetables
I slice a lot of vegetables due to my dietary requirements and always wanted to try this design. Let me tell you, this knife makes slicing veggies so easy and as a plus, I can scoop them up when done slicing. Great knife for the price.

Very pleased
I am very pleased with this knife. I like the way it handles and cuts. My daughter was helping me prepare dinner and she too loved this knife.
My only disappointment is that it does not fit in my knife block.

W�sthof� Gourmet Hollow-Edge Chai Dao
I was somewhat disappointed with the purchase. I have a set of the Wusthof Classic knives and wanted this knife to match the set. I noted when I received this one that it is not the same classic style and the tang is not part of the handle like the Classic style so it is not exactly part of the set. I hope that it has the same blade material and quality.
